We work very hard to update and improve our curriculum regularly by:

  • Researching how to improve our lessons.

  • Integrating many speaking activities into our lessons, usually implemented in pairs or groups, to encourage interaction inside the classroom.

Your instructor(s)

At EAN, we offer our courses for a very low fee thanks to our volunteer teachers who have diverse backgrounds and differing amounts of teaching experience. Because those teachers are volunteers, they usually have other commitments or responsibilities such as focusing on their own studies or paid work.
